During Wednesday’s working trip to Kastsyukovichy district, Belarusian president Alyaksandr Lukashenka met and talked to local residents.
At the meeting, the prospects of the region’s future development were discussed. However, the head of state blasted Belarusians for the lack of discipline, unwillingness to obey the laws and keep order.
“I do not want to say that everyone is bad. But thefts are a big problem. As president, I am even ashamed to talk about it. People steal everything, starting from diesel oil and petrol. For example, some people have recently tried to steal grain. And they don’t feel ashamed at all, they don’t even hide it. They take it as if it is their own. We will root such things out!” state-run news agency BelTA quotes Lukashenka.
According to him, ‘discipline and organization’ are needed to solve the current problems. The president promised to give an opportunity to work and make money to ‘wonderful hardworking people’ and ‘whip into shape’ those who get in their way.
